Just some pictures from schooling. These are some of the sheets we laminated for the extra workboxes. Everyone wanted to work on some today -- ahhh, the "newness" factor ;o)
Jacob hates writing. He doesn't like printing letters at all. Hates copywork and anything to do with pencils and paper and lettering. He used to enjoy it a bit more, but after being burned, he's just not interested at all now. I think part of it is because at first he couldn't write. He lost a lot of 'skill' last year and is still a bit discouraged by it all.
Abigail and KatiAnne are just doing routine copywork...letttering, copying pages, etc. We laminated some of the youngers' 2nd grade school paper. That's what they grabbed...it's that newness factor...
Even Emily had fun...although following the maze wasn't exactly her skill, she had fun drawing with the erasable markers ;o)
This is our turtle. He used to be about the size of a silver dollar, fitting in the cup holder of the van console nicely.
Now, he is around 3 or 4 years old and has grown out of 2 aquariums. He needs a larger one now, but 10 gal. is what I have currently.
He's out in the front yard for his photo shoot...with several watchful cats lingering off to the sidelines, waiting to see if we forget him out there.
We have no idea what he/she is. Maybe a slider? He has the similar markings and coloration, plus those red bars behind his eyes...but we aren't sure at all. He's just a turtle that lives on the island in the house. Do you know what he is?
Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.
